A downloadable Virtual Reality Game for Windows

You wake up in an empty, abandoned house, all alone. How did you get here? It's stormy outside.  You hear the wind creaking through the old wooden boards of the house. Why is "Let me Out" written all over the walls? What was that noise?!  Maybe you are not the only one in the house...

In this virtual reality escape mini-game, the player has to find the hidden keys to escape the haunted house. The experience is available for all VR headsets. 

The game was created in unreal engine. Physical actors were placed in the virtual environment, using xR technology.

The game looks very pretty but I had problems with my Quest 2, for example, I wasn't able to interact with objects where requested. Also, the movement is pretty slow... is there any workaround?

I was using Virtual Desktop, do you think that could be the issue? I will also try with oculus Link later today.

Thanks for trying out our mini-game and for leaving this comment! Unfortunately, this game is not optimized to be played on virtual desktop but please let us know if you run into issues with the Oculus Link. 

Really nice graphics but it needs a good spec PC to run without stuttering.

I liked the hologram type figure that helps you out.

The voiceover could do with telling you to return to the padlocked door after finding each key. I assumed you needed to find them all before going back and I ended up wandering around for ages looking for the second key before realising.

Thanks for sharing.

doesn't seem to work for me. Failed to load

Hey Max, sorry about the hiccup, it's all fixed now. You can re-download the package. Enjoy! 

Cool. Now it loads. Now can you tell me how i push the play in the main menu since there is no mouse cursor :)

What headset are you using? You should be able to use your VR controllers. 

Oh its a VR game? nvm then, I did not see that.
